Item description for Lord, Who Are You?: The Names of Christ by Jorge Cardinal Medina Estevez & Eladia Gomez-Posthill...

The "names" of Christ are certain words or titles that are used in Sacred Scripture to refer to Christ. Sometimes these names do not designate Jesus exclusively, as is the case with "shepherd" and "son of God", although they are applied to him in a very special way. There are other names that pertain only to Christ, such as "Lamb of God" and "Bread of Life". The purpose of this little book is simply to reflect about and meditate on the names of Christ in order to draw near to him with humility, so we may know who he is and what sort of blessings the Father imparts to us through him. The fruit of such reflection should be the praise of God for his love and for the wonders he has done and continues to do for us, gratitude for all his boundless gifts, and, as a consequence, love for him who loved us first. Thus the reader will discover a rich and limitless prospect for learning about Christ through the Scriptures: he will see "the unsearchable riches of Christ" (Eph 3:8) and in these riches find joy, peace, and a pattern of life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lord, Who Are You?: The Names of Christ?

Reference and Reflection on the Names of Christ  Feb 2, 2008
Cardinal Estevez based this book on a 16th century Spanish work written by Fray Luis de León which reflexcted on the names of Christ. This short book follows a similar patter of presenting reflections on the different names for Christ found in the New Testament. 31 different names are presented in alphabetical order, and each is presented within the scriptural context where it is found. Some of the names such as Word of God are extensively fleshed out, with the theological and spiritual significance richly illustrated, while others are presented more briefly. This is a book which provides rich fodder for prayer and meditation. It is perhaps not one that one can simply sit and read cover to cover, it seems that would be a bit tedious, but it is certainly a book worth exploring.
left me wishing for more  Aug 13, 2006
This book does not promise much, and lives up to its promise. The concept is a great one, meditations/explorations of the various "names" of Christ. In the end, it turns out to be more or less a concordance of all the times the various "names" appear in the bible, with nowhere near as much fleshing out of each one as I would have hoped. I buy a lot from this publisher (Ignatius) and I am almost always very pleased with the quality (and orthodoxy) of what they sell. This one, though, is only fair.
